The Book was Dedicated to: The members who worked so hard to preserve the memory of those dear loved ones who started and strive to continue the church over the years.

A special thanks to Ricky Sothhall, Jessie Mason, Emily Kelley and our dear departed Maude Miller and Ovedia Kelley, without whose help most of this would not be written.

This year we celebrate 124 years. Recently we have obtained documentation back to the year 1880, when the church was voted into the West Florida Baptist Association (in the document Grassy Point Baptist church is listed as founded in 1874). Grassy Point Baptist Church was the original name of this Church.
